The Instant #1 New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Detective Lindsay Boxer investigates the most explosive case of her career.

Lindsay Boxer is learning to love again. After the picture-perfect world she shared with her husband, Joe, and their beautiful young daughter shattered under the weight of Joe's double life, Lindsay is determined to put the pieces back together. But before she can welcome Joe back with open arms, their beloved hometown of San Francisco faces a threat unlike any the city--or the country--has ever seen.

When the danger hits even closer to home, Lindsay and Joe find a common cause and spring into action, with quick results. But what at first seems like an open-and-shut case quickly turns into anything but, when the suspect threatens everything that Lindsay has worked a lifetime to build. As Lindsay's investigation is scrutinized and undermined by a criminal as brilliant as any high-powered defense lawyer, and her motives are called into question by everyone she thought had her back, not even the truth may be enough to save her.

In a desperate fight for her career--and her life--Lindsay must connect the dots of a deadly conspiracy before a fiendish enemy puts her on trial-and walks free with blood on his hands.

Filled with the trademark suspense and emotion that have made James Patterson the world's #1 bestselling writer, 16th Seduction is the Women's Murder Club's toughest case yet--and an exhilarating thrill ride from start to finish.

This fell short of my expectations for a Women's Murder Club novel. The ending was too abrupt for my liking.

I think by now most of us know yhst Pattetson is only a consultant on this series at best. Paetro is doing a fantastic job and, while this book was far better than most of this genre, it was not quite ad good as previous books in this series. Can't wait for the next one. Stephanie Clanahan

Did Lindsay Just Solve Her Easiest Case? I made no secret of how disappointed I was by the previous book in the Women’s Murder Club series. But after investing this far, I wasn’t quite ready to give up on them yet. It does help that I get them from the library and they are fast reads. But it was with some trepidation that I sat down to read 16th Seduction. I’m glad I gave the series another chance because I really enjoyed this one. The main action of this book opens six months after the previous book ends. San Francisco homicide detective Lindsay Boxer is still separated from her husband Joe, but she has agreed to go to dinner with him on their wedding anniversary. The two are enjoying their meal on one of the many piers in the city when there is an explosion at a neighboring pier. When Lindsay and Joe rush over to investigate, Lindsay finds a man standing watching the destruction. Something about him seems off, so she heads over to talk to him, and he confesses to setting the bomb. Naturally, after a night in jail, the suspect has not only recanted his confession, but he’s denying it ever happened. While Lindsay and Joe both witnessed the confession, neither one of them recorded it. As Lindsay leads the investigation to find evidence to convict their suspect, he demands a speedy trial. Will he be convicted? Is he even guilty? And just like that we are off and running on another compelling read. I couldn’t quite figure out what was going on, so I was hanging on for every twist and turn of the case. My biggest complaint about the previous book was Lindsay and Joe’s split. I’m glad to report that things happen here that make Lindsay think through her feelings, and we got to see some growth in her as a result. What about the rest of the women in the Women’s Murder Club? Claire finds a dead body she thinks fits the pattern of a serial killer that has been flying under the radar. Yuki returns to the DA’s office in order to try the bombing case. And Cindy gets the least amount of page time here although she does get more time near the end. The friendships are strong here, and what little conflict these friends have is resolved in an adult manner. My typical complaint with the series holds true here – pacing issues. In this case, it was pretty bad with the case Claire brings up not really getting any page time until the second half of the novel, which it takes over, sidelining the bombing case until the end. There are a few other hiccups in the storytelling, but all told this is a compelling read from start to finish. I wish this series weren’t so uneven, but when the books are good, they are well worth reading. That is certainly the case with 16th Seduction. Any fan of the series will be happy they read it.
